I only run WIX filters, the Premium line at that. As an FYI, Fram has great marketing, but that doesn't mean they have great filters. I see so many people swear by lines like Fram and Moog, when really, they are economy lines that every one talks about and thus believes they are quality.

Why'd you replace the timing chains? Anyone else do this as a preventative maintenance?

I replaced my timing chains because they were rattling.. They were extremely loose once I got in there, and were actually rubbing the oil pump. A pump failure was immanent if I had not changed them when I did.

Did you lift the engine to drop the pan?
Any pointers on this? I'm needing to do mine.
